DDOT Posted August 23, 2018 Share Posted August 23, 2018 My 70 year old husband 5' 10" and weighs 145 lbs., has NSCLC with metastatic right hilar lymph nodes and metastatic tumor on left adrenal gland. Surgery was not an option and the adrenal tumor was too large for radiation. He has received two Keytruda infusions and two Chemo infusions with Pemetrexed and Alimta. Today, 8/23/18, he has noticeable pain in his Achilles' tendon with skin redness on site. He has not had any episodes like falling or bumping into anything that might cause this pain. He never said anything but I noticed he was limping. Has anyone else on Keytruda experienced this kind of muscle involvement with pain? He takes no RX pain medicine just OTC Tylenol ES sometimes. He sees his Oncologist 8/31, should we call her? Should I ask her to test his thyroid function next week, she checks his thyroid level but I'm not sure if she checks his Free T4 or TSH? He is trying to keep up with his walking, can that aggravate it? Just searching for some answers from anyone receiving Keytruda. Thanks for any help, Dorothy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
